    Blue whales are the largest animals of all time. Females grow to a length of 79 to 89 feet, weighing well over 100 tons. The heaviest blue whale ever weighed was more than 190 tons, and the longest ever measured was more than 108 feet long.
    but
    I was reading several areas about the largest
    (longest?) animal on earth.i just found this news "This was give as the blue whale. However,
    at our class for the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the head marine scientist
    has stated that the largest animal on earth is a Sea Jelly (aka
    jellyfish). I believe the length he gave was 126 feet, which is longer
    than a Blue whale."
